Grief. Sometimes life throws such loss at us, that we can barely breathe through our grief. Sometimes grief pops up years later for someone or some thing that we miss. Different people grieve differently and yet, grief is universal.
Faith can give us strength to keep moving forward. Faith can help us hold onto the good memories and to live out meaningful legacies. Faith can fill those places within which loss ripped out from us. Holy Love will not let us go.
Today I pray for all of those who are grieving. May you be filled with the strength and assurance of Holy Love by the Divine Comforter:

Today’s Home Communion focuses on the Holy Love, the Life-Giver, the Breath and Bread of Life.
I invite you to join me:
I haven’t been able lately to link Facebook here, but I could today!
I hope you can join me in this morning’s prayer:
We have been handling a lot of things and haven’t posted the way that we like to recently. But today we are here! And more importantly, God is here. God is here in our chaos. God is here in our anxiety. God is here in our pain. God is here no matter where we are. and God will bring good and growth whenever we open ourselves and allow it to be.
Here is our very quick morning prayer:
I am thankful for God’s gift of strength and love at all times.
It’s in the tough times that we need these reminders to stand on the promises of God.
Jesus could have done every one of the temptations in the wilderness. And he would have done them well. Instead, he trusted God’s call to bring each of us into his mission.
It can be tempting for us to attempt to do it “all” ourselves. But it is in working together, in creating a place of belonging, that we are given the ability to feed the hungry, to seek Justice and Equity, and discover the Loving protection and Tender care of the Holy One.
